Heralding Development: What's your headline?

Imagine a newspaper with the front page development headline of your dreams. What would it say?....

Children’s development matches prosperous economic growth

Tassew Woldehanna, Associate Professor, Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia: 'I would really like to see that the world has been made better for children'

Society works together for widespread access to knowledge
Prof Faustin Kamuzora, Mzumbe University, Tanzania : 'I teach at Mzumbe University in Tanzania, where people have their own knowledge but it’s just a matter of building on what they already know'

Finally a global governance system that works!
Iliana Olivie, Senior Analyst, International Cooperation and Development. Real Instituteo Eelcano 

How to reconcile law with social realities?
Dominik Kohlhagen, Institut de Politique et de Gestion Du Developpement (IOB): 'I work in legal anthropology, so this might not be very representative but it’s a question that I would like to be asked'

Children included in policy for poverty eradication
Uma Vennam from Young Lives India 'Because I work in research to do with children I would like to see households with young children as the focus of poverty eradication programs. In some case studies I have found households in early stages of family life are moving down in social mobility'

More from Heralding Development soon.....
